Dear saraswathiusl@gmail.com

Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

We have not understood the query that you have posted. We would request you to clarify / provide additional details so that we may answer this to the best of the ability.
In order to determine a set of equations consistent or inconsistent, we can draw their graph and can see whether are they parallel, coinciding or intersecting lines. So depending on the situation, the set of equations are called as inconsistent, dependent or independent respectively. 
In the given question, you forgot to mention the second equation. So please provide the other equation as well so that we can answer your query.
